148: LB AJ Klein

Versatile LB AJ Klein comes off the board for Carolina in round five.

The instinctive LB has experience at all three spots.  The 6'2, 250 lb prospect threw up about 350 tackles in the last three years.  He has a nose for the ball, and while he might be a two-down prospect if playing, he's a player who should be productive in the future when given the chance.

It's an odd fit, with the team having LBs for the year.  Next year, of course, there could be cap casualties; there are free agents.

Instant Reaction:
I could've taken another OL or a safety here.  Carolina isn't drafting for need at this point, not that they ever were; they've chosen to trust their board and build depth.  That's what fifth round picks are for.
